Snyder administration seeking shift in tax revenue

Lead in text: 
Local governments looking to replace revenue from personal property tax, which is being phased out
Lansing Gov. Rick Snyders administration is lobbying communities to back a statewide ballot issue that would phase out a billion-dollar tax burden on businesses and change how municipalities fund services. Michigan voters will decide in August whether to shift part of the revenue from the states use tax to communities to make up for the gradual end of the personal property tax, a key source of municipal funding.
